New Water Taxi Dock at Brooklyn's Pier 6

A new water taxi dock at Pier 6 is scheduled to be announced this morning at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The new dock will provide direct ferry service between Brooklyn Bridge Park and Governors Island.

Pier 6 is just a stone's throw from Governors Island, so this should be the shortest ferry ride in New York City.

Expected to gather at 10 a.m. for the announcement are Chris Ward, Executive Director of the Port Authority; Regina Myer, Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation President; Leslie Koch, Governors Island Preservation and Education Corporation President; Assemblywoman Joan Millman; NYC Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe; and Brooklyn BP Marty Markowitz.

UPDATE: More details here.
